Yesterday's barbeque team had a very successful day at Bunnings at Mile End netting $1000.00. It was great to have our newest member Margie join us, plus Christine and club stalwart David Rowe. 


Thank you to John Wotherspoon for organizing an excellent day at Monarto Zoo. We enjoyed the tour and an excellent picnic. It was lovely to have Andy, Christine, Heidi, Katey and Liz's friend Di join our club members.


Last Thursday morning four of us met for a Coffee Conversation at the Velo which included David Rowe. Sadly, David's current circumstances prevent him from attending our morning and evening meetings.


Last Friday, I represented the club at the Norwood club’s bbq. at Bunnings at Mile End as they were one short and we will receive $96.00 for my shift.


I plan to induct Andy and Christine into the club at this coming Thursday morning breakfast meeting which is exciting both for them and the club.


The Club's Board meeting is to be held this coming Thursday immediately after our breakfast meeting.


As mentioned, our next meeting is at the Ibis this coming Thursday morning.

Adelaide City Rotaract Quiz Night
Adelaide City Rotaract Club are holding their annual quiz night at Pulteney Grammar School on May 24 2019.

This year we are focusing on a project to help provide primary school students with essential school equipment. Schools in low socio-economic areas often have students join their school in the middle of a term and the students arrive with little or no school equipment. Our goal is to provide enough back packs, pencil cases and other essential items such as toothbrushes and socks so that when a new student arrives schools can provide them with a pack on their arrival.

The night will be "Back 2 Skool" themed so wear your best first-day-of-term outfit, bring some money for the canteen and practice your quick-maths!

The Four Way Test

The Four Way Test

Of the things we think, say or do:

  1. Is it the Truth?
  2. Is it Fair to all concerned?
  3. Will it build Goodwill and better Friendships?
  4. Will it be Beneficial to all concerned?


United in the spirit of Service we value truth, fairness and friendship; and we welcome the opportunity that Rotary gives us to contribute our talents and resources in support of others.

Jokes Corner
Larry watched, fascinated, as his mother smoothed cold cream on her face.
'Why do you do that, mum?' he asked.
'To make myself beautiful,' said his mother, who then began removing the cream with a tissue.
'What's the matter, asked Larry, 'are you giving up?'
